It looks as though they are testing the piles.

They attach the reinforcement of 2 piles to 2 beams and then push on another pile via a cross-beam.

Not good. Not good. The Arabtec situation is unsettling.

I wouldn't worry that much of that at this time. Is not the first time the developers change their building contractors. It has happen a number of times even halfway through the construction.

But at least one could hope for a speedy construction once they got on the job. I'm just worried they switch to a crappy contractor with a 1fl/month capacity.

The 'capacity' is more related to the cash flow from the developer, rather then the qualifications of the contractor itself.

Plus in the UAE (dunno elsewhere), the license specifies also the maximum number of above ground levels you are allowed to build, so I doubt a crappy contractor can get the license allowing it to go above 100

By 'crappy' I meant something along the likes of Tiger and their work @ Marina Pinnacle. Do you think it was so slow solely because of financial issues? Arabtec did an amazing job with OH, with complex floorplates, etc., while others seem to be struggling with relatievely simple designs.

While it's true some contractors are better and more organised then others, primarily it's a matter of financing. With enough financing available, Tiger could have build one floor per week too (on MP).

PS. Tiger Contracting is part of Tiger Group that is also the developer of Marina Pinacle.

Considering their similarities in design, is not hard to think DH will reach ground level in approx. 8 month , as Pentominium did

Funding asside, it also depends from the main contractor. It used to be ARABTEC before, the same one as on Burj Khalifa, Ocean Height and Infinity Tower, but they are not on board anymore. Let's wait and see who will get the job.

Too bad, no close ups on the guys, enogh to read what it says on their vests, so we can clarify if ARABTEC is still on board.
